Historically speaking, Richmond Dragway has one of the most impressive pedigrees of any racetrack in the country. Founded by Dan Weis, his father
John “Pop” Weis and family, Richmond Dragway was built in 1964 and has hosted dragracing events for over 45 seasons!
Today, Richmond Dragway is owned and operated by Weis’ nephew Johnny Davis and his wife Allison. Under their direction, the track will play host to an IHRA Summit Pro Am Divisional Event as well as the Champion Systems Sportsman Nationals in May. The future looks bright for this championship facility!
